A Collect to be Reunited with God

God of all the earth, from whom nothing is hidden and who sees every corner of creation, pull us out of our lostness and gather us to your breast, that we would not be left forever apart from your love and we would feel your comfort and presence. Do not tarry long. This we ask in the name of your son, Jesus Christ our redeemer, who reigns with you in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you; I will say to the north, “Give them up,” and to the south, “Do not withhold; bring my sons from far away and my daughters from the end of the earth– everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”‘ – Isa. 43:5-7
